angela merkel here at the white house, and the two made a pretty big announcement, which is that they had agreed to move forward with sectorial sanctions, if the crisis in ukraine worsens after the may 25th election. so i don't anticipate that we'll see any new sanctions prior to that. then a final decision will be based on what is actually happening in ukraine. this is significant, craig, because the u.s. had wanted to enforce sectorial sanctions, sanctions against the larger sectors of russia's economy. but the u.s.'s european allies had been resistant to do so because their economies are so tightly linked with that of russia. and german chancellor angela merkel was really the lynch pin here. the fact they've agreed to move forward with these sanctions means they are on the same page about something about which they were sharply divided a few days ago. in terms of what those specific sanctions will look like, that remains to be seen. interesting to note, president obama did not mention sanctioning the energy sector in his remarks yesterday. the other option that the u.s. has is to poten

chancellor angela merkel will meet with president obama at the white house later this week. on monday, russia's defense minister assured chuck hagel that russia will not invade ukraine. ukraine's acting president urged lawmakers today in kiev to quickly adopt a new constitution he says could preserve unity. militants continue to hold dozens of hostages, including seven military observers. on monday evening there were violent clashes in donetsk after the militia attacked demonstrators during a unity rally. jim maceda was at that rally and joins us live from donetsk. jim, you have been covering this from the beginning and it appears as though the violence, the tension continues to just escalate. is that a fair assessment? >> reporter: yeah, kristen, i would say that the fair assessment is that this region is always teetering on violence. it's on the edge of anarchy and it could go either way. you referred to the demonstration last night. we were there, as you said. it started out very peacefully in downtown donetsk. this was not a group of neo-nazis as all the russian state media have been repo

. further is the fact that as the german chancellor angela merkel said she thinks putin is divorced from reality. that's a huge danger here. yopg he would make an end run for kiev. however, nato told us he could invade and take over eastern ukraine in three to five days. they are not ready to take on the russian military. we have a piece about all the reasons that putin should not want to go into ukraine, including the fact that the insurgency will cost lives. that doesn't mean putin will be dissuaded from invasion of eastern ukraine for those reasons. >> this is what we learn about putin. he's not a rational, logical guy. he's not thinking about the interests of his own people. he's thinking about the elite. his government, and him staying in power. this is how he's been reasoning. and if you read any of the books about even george w. bush, days of fire, and there's a quote by george w. bush himself who said, you know, i don't understand this guy. he seems like -- i thought that he was a liberator. you know, he's showing a side of him as if he is more and more a dictator. if he takes ea
